Launched in May 2017, TikTok is the leading destination for short-form mobile video. Our mission is to inspire creativity and bring joy.
TikTok helps people find community through shared interests, giving users a canvas to express their creativity and discover the world around them. As a global platform, TikTok spans all major markets except China, where ByteDance offers a different short-form video app called Douyin. TikTok has global offices including Los Angeles, Silicon Valley, New York, Dublin, London, Paris, Berlin, Dubai, Mumbai, Singapore, Jakarta, Seoul, and Tokyo.
TikTok is a flagship product of ByteDance Ltd., a global technology company operating a range of content platforms that inform, educate, entertain, and inspire people across languages, cultures, and geographies. The company has over 60,000 employees across more than 125 cities globally.
